    Bought a Multistrada, sold the Trophy

    Last Summer I got a smoking deal on a left over Multistrada PP that I could not resist and couldnt be happier with my purchase.. I had to get heavier Shock and Fork springs but what a hoot in the twisties.

    At 510lbs wet it is much more flickable, riding position is close to the Trophy. I have rode many 300 mile days and a couple 450+ in the mountains.

    I stopped riding the Trophy altogether and sold it to a friend.

    Do you give the Goldwingers a head start?

    I don't get how some folk trade in their Trophy for a totally different style of bike and not miss all what the Trophy has?

    I understand that the weight of this beast may become an issue in later years, that's fair enough and good reason to have to change to something totally different.

    Personally I wouldn't want to lose all what the Trophy offers but it is my daily transport, maybe I'd think differently if I used a motorcycle occasionally, I dunno.

    Pleased that you are happy with the Ducati, don't forget to keep an eye on the drive system, now you have a bike with a chain.

    Itís not an age/weight issue, itís a performance issue. The Trophy is underpowered for 2up mountain riding. Comfort, the Multi is fine with a taller windscreen. Itís has lots of features too, cruise, electronic suspension (not the PP version). BT hub to connect helmets and phones to bike, Cornering ABS, Trction Control, Wheelie Control (all adjustable)

    Itís a safer bike for Sport Touring with the emphasis on Sport. Donít  get me wrong the Trophy is very capable but it doesnít work as well for me as the TTSE.

    I really learned a lot from this forum and I really appreciate all the information shared here, keep up the good work.

    No, I just wait on them at the next turn, if needed. Most of the guys I ride with have went with smaller bikes, Trophy, RT, XR etc.

    I will say a Wing with Traxxion suspension and the right Pilot is very capable.

    A mate of mine took one out on a test ride last month. he absolutely loved it, but the test bike was close to £18k and had a host of warning lights on the dash that wouldn't go out. The sales guy told him "It's a common issue, but we'll sort it if you buy it" Not exactly what you want to hear if you're about to blow 18 grand!

    Underpowered? Really??
    I got to say, even when two up, I can't fault the performance of the Trophy but I guess that I don't know how fast you wanna go?
